The guests included nobility from around the world, as well as famous individuals from society and politics.
The bride wore a dress dubbed “whisper white" designed by Wolfgang Joop and a tiara that was reportedly made in Paris in 1860. She arrived at the wedding in a Rolls Royce, while her 35-year-old husband walked to the ceremony.
Although the pair is not in line for the throne, Prince Georg Friedrich would be kaiser had his great-great grandfather not been forced to abdicate in the wake of World War I.
The pair are considered reserved and down to earth and Germany’s "royal" couple leads a relatively bourgeois existence: both are business managers and work at companies in Berlin and Rostock.
